    Susy, I don’t usually get much gardening done on the weekends. That’s usually family and friends face time. No not media face time but real face time. Sunday especially is filled with church, lunch with daughter, and card playing time with my mother in law.

    During the week I’ve been working on fence building still. I’ve completed one rock border for what may become the strawberry bed at Terra Nova Gardens. It looks totally rustic which is just what I like. Most of Terra Nova Gardens is out of control weeds this year. It’s been a terrible year for weed growth and trying to keep them under control has been challenging. Still the garden is a place of peace as work continues. There’s no place like sitting in the garden amongst nature to calm the soul, don’t you think?

    Have a great garden soul cleansing day.
